Siavash Naghshbandi - Kiosk Series 2008


Curated By Vahid Sharifian
A group photography and painting exhibition by Afshin Chizari, Hadi Fallah-pisheh, Siavash Naghshbandi, Mohammadreza Mirzaei, Ali Zanjani, Hoda Kashiha and Shabahang Tayyari.

“The commonalities of the artists featured here, reference a period and situation from which they have taken influence. they are all 22 or 23 years old, they have all experienced childhood –the period in which their personalities took shape– in the post-war years, they have a newer attitude and ideology compared to my generation, the period of their youth took place during the second half of the 1990’s and their art is inspired from the events and conditions which formed during this time and took shape in the first decade of the 21st century.
These artists experienced the aftermath of war and not war itself. As such their work is more introversive than the frankness and violent absoluteness of the war years and Iran of the 1980’s.”
